Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.0/100, a mean average of 78.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

This is pleasant and enjoyable record, couple of catchy tunes especially in the first half but nothing really attention grabbing.

An album that shines in places but also trails off the further you get into the music with the last 4 songs being a real drag in my opinion. We start with an absolutely amazing song which sums up Stereolab perfectly. It has this groove and edge to it which makes it so unique and with that distinctive vocal on top it makes Metronomic Underground possibly the groups best ever song. The vocal and instrumental arrangements the whole way through are pretty great as well and with the slick production we get a smooth and cohesive listen. The sound this group can create is extremely impressive and they know the style of music they are going for and execute it very effectively. However, just like with most Stereolab records it starts out amazing and the quality slowly drifts away. You really do crave the end of the record by the time you get to track 10 or 11 and it doesn't pick back up after this point either. Overall, a lot of interesting sounds and experimentation on this record that make a fun listen for the most part.

It starts off as very promising, but somewhere I felt the energy was lost. There were moments I found myself waiting for the vocals to come in (which were fantastic by the way) and that can never be a good thing, especially in such an album.

An absolutely marvelous record that is a shining example of why the 1990's are music's best decade. This Stereolab gem sounds like French aliens invaded Earth and decided to try their hand at pop music, and made a better album than anything that's been released in the last twenty years.

The evolution of this ensemble to true individual identity. Great songs from the start to the finish. An all-time favorite.

Most Stereolab albums are similarly groove-based and they're all great.

Who could of imagined that the missing ingredient to Kraftwerk’s Man-Machine was actually a French Woman? Those crazy Brits that’s who. Perhaps it took a little continental separation to realize that a chanteuse was the tonic to krautrock’s gin. Blend in secret weapon extraordinaire Mary Hansen’s bubbling champagne of background vocals, shake with the most famous Moog in rock history and voila - the cocktail Emperor Tomato Ketchup was born. Just perfect for any Space Age Bachelor Pad.

In fond memory to Mary Hansen from a fellow bicyclist. You were always the perfect Ying to Latetia’s Yang both on vocals and in spirit. You’ve been missed!
